PS Vita PSOne Classics: Romance, Monkeys, Fighting

Saiyuki!

After last week’s decent rush of PSOne Classics, this week’s direct-download offerings for the PlayStation Vita are a bit of a letdown. Only a paltry three are on offer today, but it’s not all bad — one of them is Saiyuki!

Saiyuki: Journey West, like so many fondly remembered PSOne games, will likely be known to you more for its demo than the full product. It certainly was by me. I still recall the demo with all the happiness in my congealed, fatty heart. Couldn’t tell you a thing about the full game though. I’ll probably buy this. 

The other two titles on offer are also from Koei — Romance of the Three Kingdoms IV and Destrega. One is part of the ancient series of insanely deep strategy games, the other is a free-roaming fighting game. Just in case you forgot.

Not as good as last week, but I got Fighting Force last week, and its awful brilliance is keeping me more than entertained.
